("Heist!")

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Ab-Soul & Macklemore) – Jimmy Iovine Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The name of the album this song is taken from.

Macklemore is comparing his attempts at getting a record deal with Interscope to a heist, which shows that he thought the only way he’d make it out with a record deal would be if he stole one.

Also, the way that he says “Now I’m headed up” before he says “heist” could mean that he is using a heist as a metaphor to show that since Thrift Shop came out Macklemore has headed up so far in terms of his fame and popularity that it’s almost like he has stolen the limelight from other rap artists, as well as other mainstream artists.
